US Weather Spotlight: 5-31-19

Shower and storm activity is in the forecast again as we end May and begin June, however it will be less active regarding severe weather than previous weeks. There will still be a chance for a few severe storms, but not as widespread, and no outbreaks expected.

Frontal boundaries again will be the main feature triggering this storm activity. The first front will be situated from west TX eastward through the Gulf Coast states and north into the Mid-Atlantic States by this afternoon/evening producing showers and storms. The best chances for any severe storms will be in the west TX/southern NM region, and in the eastern Carolinas and southern VA. The second front will build into the northern Plains and upper Midwest tonight with severe storm probabilities from northeast SD to central lower MI. This front continues south through the weekend bringing storm chances from the central and southern Plains to the east coast with the greatest chances for severe weather coming on Saturday from central KS northeastward to central IL.

In the west, just your typical afternoon and evening shower and storm chances mainly in higher elevations, but no major storm systems are expected to affect this region through the weekend.
